The Real Odds of Making a Double Eagle:
The real odds of making a double eagle are primarily determined by the individual golfers handicap index number.
For PGA Tour players, who have no handicap index number, the odds are 72,000 to 1.
For scratch amateurs, with a handicap index from 1 to 5, the odds are similer to the Tour players odds.
However the distances the PGA Tour plays compared to amateurs is significantly different, so there are more legitimate
opportunities to score a double eagle for the amateur players.
The amateurs with handicap index numbers ranging from 5 to 25 the odds are from 100,000 to 1 on up to 1,000,000 to 1.
The above information was supplied by Scott Hovde of the USGA.
